10 Design has designed and started to construct the project Summer International Shopping Mall in Zhuhai, China.
Zhuhai is a growing city and the site of this project is unique in that it is a meeting point between the grid of the city and the natural topography of the surrounding hills.
The project is a mixed-use, 360,000 m2 development is designed by 10 Design and led by partner Gordon Affleck.
The mall will include a hotel and residential with a total accommodation to 510,000 m2 and commercial retail spaces.
The Summer Group chose to provide community space with the shopping mall, creating an environment that also has a natural landscape. The projects aim is to make Summer International Shopping Mall one of the major destinations in Southern China.
Defined by planted terraces and a garden, the LED blocks provide entry gateways and break out points that reveal the soft edge of the building. The terraces designed as pedestrian ways, also they undulate and create valleys that natural provide gathering points, plazas and shaded courtyards.
